Well, the program is using the default Visual Studio icon file. That is not a commercial program and is most likely a virus. If you reinstalled Windows and it is still there either: 1/ That program is preinstalled on that disc 2/ It is a virus that got attached to your hardware's memory I agree with ChrisW9 to check where the file is located. I would like to know :)
Edit: Check out this forum post on the HP website. If you want to get rid of it you can apparently uninstall HP's quicklaunch and wireless assistant software, but check to make sure you need it. As far as I can tell it is normal. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-systems-and/Problem-With-the-HpqToaster-Module/td-p/101604
